Desempleo

Javier Etchevarren

Son demasiado largas las filas de los desempleados.

Son demasiado grandes las horas de los desempleados.

Son demasiado anchas las dudas de los desempleados.

Son demasiado cortos los cigarrillos de los desempleados.

Unemployed

Translated by Jesse Lee Kercheval

They are too long, the lines of the unemployed.

They are too endless, the hours of the unemployed.

They are too wide, the doubts of the unemployed.

They are too short, the cigarettes of the unemployed.
